MIDƐM+, a global event dedicated to music professionals, is organized by the Mairie de Cannes and its Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, in collaboration with Hopscotch and with the support of Allover/Panda Events.

After a successful prefiguration edition in which the electronic music pioneer gave three immersive live concerts in January 2023, Jean-Michel Jarre is renewing his support for the event as MIDƐM+‘s “honorary sponsor”.

By bringing together one of the world’s best drummers, the Afro-pop icon and the most visionary of musicians, MIDƐM+24 reflects the diversity and innovation that characterize contemporary music creation and industry.

Stewart Copeland, famous for his role as founder and drummer of the legendary band The Police, brings his unrivalled expertise as an award-winning musician and composer. African music phenomenon Yemi Alade is hailed for her unique style and captivating stage presence, while electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre is recognized for his spectacular performances and boundless creativity.

The MIDEM+24 patrons will take part in a series of events during the festival.

Stewart Copeland will take part in a meeting with students from the Georges-Méliès campus, a masterclass, a round table on artificial intelligence and its impact on the music industry, and a book signing. He will leave his footprints on Cannes’ Chemin des Etoiles and be named Honorary Citizen of the City of Cannes.

🎤 Yemi Alade will set the stage of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes alight with an exceptional performance on January 25.

Jean-Michel Jarre will be supporting the official launch of FNAMM (Formation Numérique Aux Métiers de la Musique), and will be giving a masterclass on January 25 at 4pm. He will leave his mark on the Chemin des Etoiles in Cannes.
